Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My drive will play games and discs just fine but it won't eject. Any way to fix this. It's no longer in warranty.
Try a blu ray reset all you do is power the system off by button on front not the switch on back the hold the eject button for 15 to 30 seconds if this does not work then ether you gears are out of line of they are too worn

Open that **** up,have similar problem,mine was caused because of a sticker on a dvd, couldnt find my warranty,and force eject wouldnt work,i was afraid to open the bluray drive completely,just to the point where i could manually eject the disc and found a round sticky mark on the disc,the sticker is probably still in there,but keeping the ps3 horizontally seems to help,your problem however could involve with the thingies in the driver not being propperly alligned

You could try holding down the eject button for 10 seconds, it resets the drive. hope this helps

SOURCE: PS3 WON'T PLAY BLU-RAY DISCS
The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:
Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.
Hope this helps!

So your shiney black pearl stopped reading discs huh? Now you are wondering if you can fix it because A)You are out of warranty and don't wanna pay almost 200 bucks to have it fixed or B) You are under warranty but don't wanna be without your PS3 for almost a month or longer .... Maybe you casn fix it on your own, if the problem is simple enough.
Sometimes the PS3 won't read discs simply because the lens is dirty, to find out if thats the case insert a game or blu-ray disc ... take careful note of the disc's 'label' as you put it in ... once it doesn't read after 10-15 seconds eject it ... if the disc's label hasn't moved your blu-ray drive's 'motor' is broken. Best bet is to send back to Sony and pay em. Or take the PS3 apart and try to replace the whole blu-ray drive.
If you remove the disc and notice it has moved your lens is probably dirty. This you 'can' fix yourself. First give the PS3 a GOOD cleaning. Vacuum it, blast it with a can of compressed air, vacuum again. Try disc.
Didn't work? Try a lens cleaner kit.
Didn't work? Time to get your hands dirty ... open the PS3 up (at your own risk) and clean the laser manually with pure alcohol and a q-tip. (video tutorials are on youtube.com)
Disc read errors are our main problem. It isn't some full blown epidemic but IS becoming worse by the day. My reasoning for this problem is simple: The PS3 is a dust MAGNET. I'm betting 90% of the disc read errors are cause by dust and dirt and pet hair getting in the machine and making the lens dirty or causing actual failure of the drive motor itself.
I love the PS3 and wish it didn't fail for anyone, especially this month with great titles almost here, but it happens. Happened to me on April 1st and I found out my blu-ray drive motor failed. A dirty lens I woulda fixed on my own. We really need a good blu-ray cleaner kit to come on the market in all major retail stores.
